Game Centre: Raptors take out frustrations on Bulls in Windy City

Game Centre: Raptors take out frustrations on Bulls in Windy City

"We fought hard tonight, they played a better game and we've just got to keep playing better".

Hopefully Utah will choose to come out with energy and focus, unlike they've done in recent contests. And the Jazz haven't looked like the Jazz of last season, when they were one of the darlings of the league during a run to the second round of the playoffs. Open the game with a triple, followed shortly by stealing a rebound from behind for an open lay-up, and even had his little running push-shot working (a shot I don't particularly love from him).

Smith even claimed that if the Celtics fail to make the National Basketball Association finals, their season will be a failure. Irving told reporters it was "pretty peaceful" after the win.

"What he said was real".

"You could point to anybody on our team", Snyder said. He said, 'It's not OK. "I mean, that's who we've been".

"We have to build a tougher team mindset than we have", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

Kyrie Irving scored 23 of his 43 points in the fourth quarter and overtime Friday as the Boston Celtics made a statement with a 123-116 victory over the NBA's Eastern Conference leading Toronto Raptors.

"I ain't really anxious about [the record], whatever it is", Lowry said. They didn't allow the Bulls to get ahead, winning by a large margin of 111-82.

The Toronto Raptors suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Boston Celtics last night.

As Andy Larsen and Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune revealed, the Jazz felt "confident" they could land Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, before pulling out of a deal.

Former Boston Celtic Jae Crowder scored five quick points off the bench for the Jazz, and finished a team best plus-19, playing the type of small-ball power forward role that he exceed with in Boston.

Jayson Tatum is continuing the momentum of his strong rookie season with 15.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists, while Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward are all averaging double-figure scoring. Early in the fourth quarter, he got to the rim for a layup; he had a massive dunk to pull Boston to within two with 48.7 seconds remaining in regulation; and he hit a floater in the lane midway through overtime that pushed Boston out to a multipossession lead for the remainder of the game.

Serge Ibaka scored 21 and Pascal Siakam had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Raptors, who have lost three straight since opening the season with 12 victories in their first 13 games. The potential to be elite is there, but things just aren't clicking. "But to be able to get paid to play at this level is a blessing, and I don't want it to be taken away because of my lack of effort".

Leonard finished the game with 31 points, 15 rebounds and four assists, missing the would-be game-winner just before the buzzer in the fourth.
